Governor Knowles State Forest
Annual Property Implementation Plans
Implementation plans are posted every year in March and contain:
- major planned and scheduled forest and habitat management treatments;
- recreation and infrastructure development projects; and
- other property management actions.
Completed in September of 2012, the master plan reflects years of planning and public input. The final plan, maps, variances and amendments are included in the plan, as well as documents used during the plan's development.
Public involvement in state forest management, operations and monitoring is part of sustainable forestry. We seek public involvement because we believe people, communities, organizations and businesses realize the potential public benefits of state forests and are willing to work to further the goals of sustainable forestry.
Timber sale program
The state forests are managed sustainably for multiple uses. Active timber management is a part of that overall effort on many parts of each forest. Timber sales are advertised for sale typically from one to three times annually, depending on the size of the forest.
